Mühleisen to leave Arla Foods Germany
Markus Mühleisen, head of Arla Foods Germany, has decided to accept an offer outside of the dairy group. He is to become CEO of Agrana, a listed company based in Vienna, Austria.
For the past three years, since joining Arla Foods as managing director in March 2018, Mühleisen has managed Arla’s business in Germany. He focused in particular on the development of the brand business, increasing profitability, expanding customer relationships and implementing the sustainability strategy.
“I am proud of the successes we have achieved as a team in Germany. We managed to expand our brands further and I really appreciated working for a cooperative and our farmers,” Mühleisen says. To ensure a smooth transition, he will stay with Arla Foods until the end of May. The recruiting process for a successor has already started.
